current summary record

A part of the UK’s Single Assessment Process guidelines, which draws on information from various sources to provide a current picture of older persons, their health and social care needs and any services they receive.

The CSR is defined by the Department of Health as the means by which case information on an assessed person is shared, subject to consent and confidentiality, among health and social care professionals. It draws on information collected during the assessment process but also covers care plan information, including support and services that are being provided. It can draw on other sources and should show changes in needs, services and other circumstances between formal assessments.
